Virgil van Dijk Bid Reportedly Considered by Arsenal Amid Liverpool Rumours


The Daily Express reports that Arsenal are plotting a £45m swoop for Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk as they eye glory next season, with the Dutch defender adding to their already impressive defensive ranks.

A public apology was issued and no further action was taken.

However, as reported by the Metro, Van Dijk is ready to insist that he will only move to Liverpool, while he could hand in a transfer request in order to make sure that the £60m move happens.

Liverpool were favourites to sign the 26-year-old but had to back off after Saints made an official complaint about the way they approach the transfer.

He has since proved he has the physicality, concentration and technique required to be an effective Premier League centre-back.

On Saturday, a video was shared around Liverpool fans of Van Dijk reportedly "smiling" when an Albanian Reds fan told him to switch to Anfield.

Southampton have sold some of their best players in recent years, such as Victor Wanyama and Adam Lallana, and it should not come as a surprise if in the end they do let Van Dijk leave for Liverpool.

Other sides including Chelsea and Arsenal have been paired with an interest, but it still looks as though Liverpool lead the race, and their previously strong relationship with Southampton could be important.
